what do you do with them? do you cut them down do you just file it away

I saw something on pinterest where they punched holes down the side and put them onto book rings. I did it with my kids birthday cards an will do it with the Christmas cards this year.

I normally fit as many as I can onto a 2 pg. layout (12x12) and toss the rest. I anally rotate which photos go in, so it's not always the same kids.
I also saw the cute hole-punched book idea and will be doing that this year instead of tossing the ones not on the layout.

I'll put all of my photo cards in an envelope in my DD this year. Normally if it's someone I'm not close to I keep the card up until after the holidays and then toss them. I don't have space to keep all the cards I receive. I normally only get 1-2 photo cards a year and the rest are just generic store bought ones. So I don't feel bad tossing the store bought ones at all.

I used to take my Christmas cards to the daycare I worked at, the kids would use them as art for different projects. I do use some of them in my DD if they are pretty/cute and all the photo cards I get are usually from family so I scrap them on 12 x 12 pages in my Christmas album.

I did the book thing from pintrest. I'm going to put them out with our christmas stuff. We receive a ton each year. I think I could fill a whole album with just one year's worth. Already have 3 for this year!

I want to make a 12x12 album with the ones I saved year after year. One 2 pg LO for each year. Maybe one day I'll get to it.

Whosthischick, I love what you did with yours. TFS
I cuts the images I like from all of our cards. I have been keeping them and will either use them in making gift tags for presents Orwell use them in my DD album in future years.
There are some organizations (UNICEF?) that take donated cards. They use the. To make cards for future years.
